BREAK – IN PERIOD
As with a new car your new tractor should receive
special attention. In the first few hours of operation
it is best to vary the engine speed between 3/4 and
full throttle .. avoid full - throttle driving, quick
starts and stops until you've become well acquainted
with your tractor. IMPORTANT: THE TRACTOR IS
SHIPPED FROM THE FACTORY WITHOUT OIL IN
THE ENGINE CRANKCASE. SEE LUBRICATION
GUIDE, PAGE 9 AND ENCLOSED ENGINE FOLDER,
FOR PROPER GRADE OIL AND QUANTITY TO BE
USED.
For your satisfaction:
Both the tractor and engine have been tested by
the factory and your dealer prior to its delivery.
However, so that you may become familiar with your
unit before operating it, READ THIS MANUAL carefully ... if you have any questions that are not answered in the manual, ask your dealer.
INSTRUMENTS AND CONTROLS
For efficient operation of the tractor, study the accompanying illustrations (Figure 4), together with the
4
Figure 4
brief descriptions given here, until you are thoroughly familiar with the location and function of each
control.
1. GEAR SHIFT LEVER - 3 speeds ahead, 1 in reverse. See instructions on page 8.
2. TWO SPEED RANGE LEVER - Provides a
total of 6 speeds ahead, 2 in reverse from less than 3/4
mph to 6 mph. See instructions on page 8.
3. PTO (POWER TAKE OFF) CLUTCH - Always
be sure to lock lever in slots provided when P.T.O.
is engaged or disengaged.
4. THROTTLE - Turn knob counterclockwise to unlock. Pull out to increase engine speed, push in to
decrease. Turn knob clockwise to lock at desired
RPM.
NOTE
Do not operate tractor below half throttle for
prolonged periods of time under load.
5. CLUTCH-BRAKE PEDAL - To shift gears, depress clutch pedal fully. This disengages the clutch,
and fully applies the brake. Relax brake tension slightly,
and shift gears.
Never allow gears to clash while shifting.
Hasty shifting will result in gear grinding and
premature gear failure.
6. CHOKE - When starting engine, pull knob out to
close the choke, pushing knob gradually in as engine

Check and clean regularly.
5. Clean flywheel screen. Check and clean regularly.
6. Visually check for loose nuts, screws, and electrical wiring.
7. Check for 8 lbs. tire inflation. TIRE INFLATION
SHOULD NOT BE LESS THAN 8 LBS.
STARTING THE ENGINE
IMPORTANT: READ THE SEPARATE, ENCLOSED ENGINE
FOLDER TO BECOME ACQUAINTED WITH ITS OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE REQUIREMENTS.
ELECTRIC STARTING
1. Check PTO safety clutch (should be in OFF position) and gear shift (should be in NEUTRAL).
2. Pull choke knob all the way out (to fully close
choke). Experience will indicate need for more or
less choking due to variations in temperature, grade
of fuel, etc.
3. Turn throttle knob counterclockwise to unlock
if necessary. Pull throttle knob out about half - way
until after engine has started, then adjust to desired
RPM and lock at this setting, if desired, by turning
knob clockwise.
4. Insert ignition key and turn clockwise, against
spring tension, to actuate starter. Release key when
engine starts.
Figure 5
11. PARKING BRAKE - To apply parking brake, pull
knob up and move it to the right. To release, pull
knob up and move it to the left.
5. Choke should be partially opened (knob pushed
forward) as soon as engine starts and then gradually
pushed all the way forward as the engine warms up.
In normal operation, choke knob should be in OPEN
(forward) position for best engine efficiency and fuel
economy.
PRE-OPERATIONAL CHECKS
The operator should become familiar with the following pre-operational check list prior to starting or
operating the HUSKY.
1, Check for proper level of engine oil. See Engine
Manufacturer's Manual.
2. Refer to battery manufacturer's recommendations
for:
A: Proper water level.
Figure 6

6. To stop engine, turn key OFF (counterclockwise)
and place gear shift lever in NEUTRAL, setting
brake if necessary. Remove ignition key when tractor is not in use.
EMERGENCY STARTING
In the event of electrical failure, remove the generator belt and proceed as follows:
1. Check PTO safety clutch (should be in OFF position) and gear shift (should be in NEUTRAL). Turn
ignition key clockwise.
2. Pull choke knob all the way out (to fully close
choke). Experience will indicate need for more or
less choking due to variations in temperature, grade
of fuel, etc.
3. Turn throttle knob counterclockwise, if necessary,
to unlock it. Pull throttle knob out about half-way
until after engine has started, then adjust to desired
RPM and lock at this setting, if desired, by turning
knob clockwise.
4. Wind the starter rope around the starter pulley.
Give a quick, steady pull on starter rope. Repeat,
if necessary, until engine starts.
5. Choke should be partially opened (knob pushed
forward) as soon as engine starts and then gradually
pushed all the way forward as the engine warms up.
In normal operation, choke knob should be in OPEN
(forward) position for best engine efficiency and fuel
economy.
NOTE
Always operate the tractor at full throttle
when heavy and light work loads are applied.
Use gear ratios to obtain safe and desirable
ground speeds. The governor will control
for any increase or decrease in power requirement.
PREVENTATIVE MAINTENANCE
Operational maintenance and preventative maintenance are synonymous. When neglected, unnecessary down time and costly repairs can result. A
little time spent each day by the operator on preventative maintenance will lead to longer operating
life of the HUSKY.
The removal of debris, dirt and grease accumulations are considered normal maintenance practices
and can help discover minor difficulties before they
become troublesome.
BATTERY (Fig. 7) - Keep cables and terminals clean
and apply a light coat of vaseline or oil for protection. Check battery bracket for corrosion and keep
clean. Check water for proper level. Never loosen
hold down clamps until you have removed battery
cables from the battery post. Always remove ground
(-) cable first.
6. To stop engine, turn key OFF (counterclockwise)
and place gear shift lever in NEUTRAL, setting brake
if necessary. Remove ignition key when tractor is
not in use.
7. If engine fails to start, recharge or replace battery.
STOPPING THE ENGINE
1. If the engine has been operating under a heavy
load and is hot, do not stop it suddenly. Allow the
engine to idle for approximately three to five minutes. This will reduce the engine temperature more
quickly and evenly than stopping the engine.
2. Turn ignition switch off.
Figure 7
RUN – IN PERIOD
Before operating the tractor at full load, it should
be operated at one-half throttle for approximately onehalf hour with no load applied. After the first half
hour of operation, run the tractor at full throttle with
no load applied for an additional one-half hour.
Attach a light load to the tractor. Operate the tractor with light load for a period of three hours at full
throttle. The tractor is now ready for maximum
load operation.

FUEL TANK (Fig. 8) - Fill with clean, fresh gasoline of regular grade. DO NOT MIX OIL WITH GASOLINE! Check to see that vent hole in fuel tank cap
is not plugged.
AIR CLEANER (Fig. 9) - Dry Type - Refer to enclosed Engine booklet for instructions.
SPARK PLUG - Clean area around spark plug
before removing plug. The correct gap setting is .025 inch.
PNEUMATIC TIRE PRESSURES - Maintain pressure
in tires as recommended here. Ideal pressure will
depend upon load carried. Heavier loads require
higher inflation. Check pressures with a low pressure gauge having one-pound graduations. Operating
with pressures below pressures given here may
damage tires.

Tire pressure must be the same on one side as the
other, or else the tractor will ride unevenly and attachments such as the rotary mower will not cut
level. Remember, also, that tire pressure, weight
of the operator, or a combination of the two will affect the riding height of the tractor and this, in turn,
will affect the cutting height of the rotary mower.

THREE – SPEED TRANSMISSION
The Husky 1050 features a 3-speed geared transmission plus a second range to give you a wide
choice of operating speeds. To prevent damage
to the gears, do not shift gears while the tractor is
in motion. Avoid clashing gears when shifting. HIGH
speed range is most practical for transport, average
mowing or pulling light attachments. LOW speed
range is best for heavy jobs such as tilling, plowing,
snow casting or mowing tall or lush grass.
The High - Low speed range change lever is located on
the transmission cover just to the right of the shift
lever. To change range, depress the clutch and
move lever (as directed on adjacent instruction
plate), move lever forward to place in low range,
move lever back to place in high range. Be sure
clutch is depressed when changing speed ranges.

CONTROLLED DIFFERENTIAL
By turning the control knob, located on the hub of the
left rear wheel as shown in figure 11, you can vary
the degree of differential traction up to nearly
straight axle drive. For jobs such as plowing, or
snow casting, turn the knob clockwise (as viewed
from left side of tractor, facing end of axle) until desired degree of drive to both wheels is obtained. For
mowing, or other lighter jobs, be sure to have control knob in standard differential position (that is,
turn the control knob counterclockwise until it stops).

This is necessary to avoid gouging or scuffing the
tires, which would be caused by having both wheels
driving on turns. The differential can be adjusted
from the driver's seat.
1. Do not adjust control knob while tractor is
in motion.
2. NEVER TIGHTEN WITH A WRENCH!
LUBRICATION
Proper lubrication and regular maintenance will increase the operating life of your HUSKY and attachments. Negligence on the part of the operator in
regard to lubrication or general maintenance can
depreciate the dependability of this rugged, durable
vehicle. It is suggested that the lubrication recommendations in this manual be followed. A lubrication schedule prepared by the operator would be
beneficial.

and moving the generator-starter. The belt is properly adjusted when it can be depressed approximately
1/4 inch under slight thumb pressure.
CLUTCH-BRAKE PEDAL
3. Remove the four capscrews and washers that hold
bearing support to the mounting plate assembly.
4. Remove bearing support by sliding it off front end
of drive shaft.
5. Remove drive belts.
To install new belts reverse the above procedure.
Be sure belt guides are properly positioned on the
engine. Locator on back of belt guide should fit into
groove on face of engine.
PTO BELT ADJUSTMENT
The PTO belts can be adjusted by loosening the three
capscrews that hold the PTO support casting to axle support casting. Raise or lower PTO support casting to
proper adjustment.
If belts are properly adjusted (as described above)
and still drag, check adjustment of lower belt guide.
There should be approximately 1/8" clearance between pulley and belt guide all the way around.
TRANSMISSION DRIVE BELT ADJUSTMENT
The transmission dual drive belts require no adjustment. There is constant belt tension applied at all
times.
As you familiarize yourself with the tractor, you
will notice that when you depress the Clutch-Brake Pedal
approximately two-thirds, the clutch is disengaged.
This Clutch-Brake Pedal position also serves as a
brake to stop the vehicle when in gear. Pedal adjustment is set at the factory and should not require
frequent attention unless the linkage has been disturbed. Should clutch slippage become evident or
brake shoe lining is worn, see your Bolens dealer.
However, to prevent the vehicle from moving when
transmission is in NEUTRAL or when shifting into
another gear, particularly on inclines, it is necessary to further depress the Clutch-Brake Pedal to
apply the main transmission Brake.
The Transmission Brake, being the main brake,
must be checked frequently and adjusted as follows:
1. Depress Clutch-Brake pedal approximately
two-thirds (until rear clutch flange has moved back
to touch stationary plate). At that time the adjusting
rod has moved up to top of brake rod slot. (See
Figure 17.)
2. Exert additional pressure on pedal to move brake
shoe shown in Figure 17, toward Main Brake drum.
GENERATOR-STARTER DRIVE BELT ADJUSTMENT
3. Brake shoe must contact drum when CLUTCHBRAKE pedal is approximately 1" to 1-1/2" from
pedal stop on frame. (See Figure 18.)
The generator-starter drive belt can be adjusted by
loosening the capsrew on the adjustment bracket
4. Adjust nuts on adjusting rod to insure adequate
brake shoe pressure. (See Figure 17.)
